The Striker(TM) line, which is patent pending, was originally developed
by Jim Simmons of Simmons Tool LLC to make the process of driving stakes more
efficient and safe. The efficiency gains are made possible by the increased
target size of the strike plate and added stability of the handle.
Historically, the top of the stake has been the striking target, but The
Striker(TM) enlarges the target with its strike plate, which protects the
stake from damage and distributes the blow more evenly. The process is made
safer because The Striker(TM) handle keeps the user's hand out of harm's way
while providing increased confidence to swing with full force. The end results
are that stakes are driven faster, easier, and with less risk of injury.
Four models for The Striker(TM) have been developed to date. The Model100
(the original design) was developed to drive 1" X 2" stakes. Additional units
include the Model200 (for 2" X 2" stakes), the Model300 (for 2" X 4" stakes),
and the ModelR100 (for rebar up to 1.25").
The Striker(TM) units are currently being manufactured in the USA by
DaveCo Industries. With virtually no marketing to date, the company has
received a tremendous amount of interest from a wide spectrum of stakeholders
including end-users, potential dealers and distributors, construction firms,
surveyors, insurance companies, and governmental entities.

construction, defense, energy, food & beverage, postal automation,
